Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb announced his plans to transfer via a statement on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

Webb, a junior, will graduate in the spring and be eligible to play immediately.

Webb was named the Holiday Bowl MVP in 2013 after passing for 403 yards and four touchdowns in the 37-23 win against Arizona State. He was named the starter going forward, which contributed to fellow quarterback Baker Mayfield transferring to Oklahoma.

Webb played in eight games in 2014, but lost five out of his final six and gave up his starting role to Patrick Mahomes, who remained the starter into the 2015 season.

Webb played sparingly this season, completing just 22 of 41 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns.

”Davis Webb is the hardest working individual I’ve ever had the privilege of coaching," Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said in a statement. “He’s a fierce competitor and an extremely talented quarterback. Wherever Davis lands, he will immediately change the outlook of that program. All Red Raider fans should be extremely proud of what he’s accomplished here in Lubbock and look forward to watching him compete next season."

Webb won’t be hurting for places to play. There are several major programs looking for a veteran quarterback, including Texas A&M, which has just one scholarship quarterback on its roster.
